The Umbrellas of Cherbourg: The Criterion Collection Some cool discs have been reviewed over the past week. Check out these recent entries: The Umbrellas of Cherbourg: The Criterion Collection - underneath the multihued, vaguely avant-garde playfulness of Jacques Demy's film lies a somber and emotionally lucid tale of love thwarted by distance, military service, and financial stability; Daredevils of the Red Circle - one of the best-ever movie serials, it boasts a great cast, incredible action sequences and special effects, and unusual characters and a considerable deviation from the usual chapter-play formula; and Willard - a strangely beguiling little movie, this is short on horror and photographed little better than a TV-movie yet it also sucks the viewer in and stays with you long after it's over. Visit the DVD Talk Review Database for all the latest reviews including an entire section devoted to reviews of DVDs out this week.

Rock Dog Several great movies and programs have come out recently, including a few that shouldn't be missed: Rock Dog - a unique production if not an original concept, but a film that is surprisingly good; The Expendables 2 - 4K Ultra HD - sillier than its predecessor, the movie is more concerned with showing off muscled machismo, explosions and ‘so bad they're good' one-liners, but none of this is to the film's detriment; and A Dog's Purpose - the perfect kind of movie to watch with your cute dog video-obsessed grandma… it balances that fine line between a cynical attempt to tug at heartstrings and a genuine examination of why canine companionship matters so much to us. Be sure to check out our DVD Talk Review Database for all the latest reviews including an entire section devoted to reviews of DVDs out this week.

From Hell It Came Some cool discs have been reviewed over the past week. Check out these recent entries: From Hell It Came - the very concept of the title monster leaves one's head spinning: a legendary native god fusing with a wrongly condemned man's curse matrixed with radiation to create an ornery tree man with green blood oozing from a beating external heart and with a thirst for revenge; The Mephisto Waltz - this seventies occult horror pictures is entertaining enough and it features some good acting and nice production values; and Night Has Settled - one of those movies that is simply entertaining to watch mainly because of the engaging performances by the young cast.

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter Some pretty cool discs have made their way to store shelves over the past couple of weeks. Check out these new titles: Resident Evil: The Final Chapter - each installment in this franchise is fun and entertaining, embracing the ridiculous absurdity of the concept while enjoying the bad-assery of its heroine, though this installment is a bit of a dud; Making Contact - an early film directed by Roland Emmerich, this is a weird mix of horror, fantasy and sci-fi clearly inspired by the eighties films of Steven Spielberg; and Good Morning: Criterion Collection - this charming and enjoyable film from director Yasujiro Ozu has no shortage of peculiar characters, memorable moments, and makes great use of the director's distinct low-angle compositions. Be sure to check out our DVD Talk Review Database for all the latest reviews including an entire section devoted to reviews of DVDs out this week.

The Fortune Cookie Our reviewers have been busy this week, filling the DVD Talk Review Database more great entries. Some new reviews of note include: The Fortune Cookie - director Billy Wilder's last big hit, it is remembered primarily as the first movie to team Jack Lemmon with Walter Matthau, and was nominated for four Academy Awards; Baby Boom - a wonderful showcase for Diane Keaton's comedy chops, the movie is better than you remember; and Woman of the Year - a romantic comedy drama directed by George Stevens, this is the first of many Spencer Tracy-Katharine Hepburn collaborations and remains as an essential film.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 It'd be a good week to go to the movies.

Other recent films include: Logan, Kong: Skull Island, Beauty and the Beast (2017), and Split.. Check out these, and more, in DVDTalk's Theatrical Review section.
